A humanist educational model can be defined as a system in which human values, dignity, reason and fulfilment in harmony with nature predominates. By contrast, the present system is based on utilitarian values to transform knowledge into commodities. Within this context we see the dehumanization of our children, young people and students. I assume that the real function of higher education today is to reify ruling class values into the social consciousness of students, and to train students to serve the capitalist machinery. Rulers have long sought domination and dehumanization through technology and imposed their regime through models of industrial education (via factory manufacturing and military training models). Today we see computers replacing teachers since they are easier and cheaper to control as this goal serves industrial progress and capital accumulation. In this period of history there is rapid acceleration of this process marked by huge profits for the worldâ€™s one thousand billionaires, the collapse of workerâ€™s rights and global environmental destruction. This paper will also investigate the tenuous situation of the part time teacher work force at universities. Issues of salary fairness aside, the overwhelming issue facing part time university teachers in Japan (and workers of many trades globally) is the lack of job security. This is a form of violence inflicted by owners and managers upon the so-called contingent workers. In reaction to this globalist agenda, a counter hegemony of radical educational, critical, cooperative and non-violent yet confrontational strategies must occur in order to insure the well being of future generations of humans and the natural world.
